Covered waggon trips Texel

Explore the island in comfort

Jan Plezier’s covered waggon tours offer lovely trips across Texel, travelling through varied landscapes with heath, moist dune valleys, dry dunes, woods and wide beaches. See Texel’s countryside from a covered waggon drawn by Belgian draft horses or make a special beach ride on one of these tough horses.

Wagon tour with disabled people 

People who are less able to walk can also join the covered wagon tour of Jan Plezier. On the covered wagon they have made arrangements for disabled people and people in wheelchairs. There is an easy step up and a fold down ramp. The wheelchair itself can also be secured in the wagon.


Riding a horse

At Jan Plezier you can make a covered wagon trip or a beach trip on these sturdy horses. In small groups they make trips through the nature of Texel, through the woods, the dunes and over the beach. The trip takes about 3 hours. After the ride they are ready for you with fresh coffee and tea with Texel cake. This trip is for experienced riders. Are you less experienced?
